Kate Marshall wants another term as Nevada Treasurer.

She made it official Monday, the day filing opened for the state’s 2010 election cycle.

Marshall, a Democrat, won office in 2006 by a more than 5% margin against her Republican opponent, Mark Destefano.

The candidate filing period runs through March 12.

The incumbent was the only candidate to stake an immediate claim on the office on the first filing day. But Republican Steve Martin, a former state controller, has said he plans to run for the treasurer’s office.

The Las Vegas accountant was appointed controller in 2006 to fill the remaining months of Kathy Augustine’s term after her murder. Democrat Kim Wallin defeated Martin’s bid for a full term that November.

Gov. Jim Gibbons in November appointed Martin to the state Board of Finance, which meets several times a year to review state investment policies and approve state bond sales.
